Save this weekend. I’ll talk about that coming up here in a few minutes. Jonathan thank you. This morning, crews are heading to the scene of a commercial fire. They’ve been there for over four hours now. Our cameras, they’ve been at this scene near I, 35 Southeast, 62 since five. And you can see the flames that used to come from that building. Coco Shelby Montgomery is right there for us now with our latest look at the scene. Shelby. Good morning. Fire crews. I just left the scene about two minutes ago. However, we still have investigators here at Moore’s unit as well. But take a look at the damage this fire caused. So, this here was a building that belonged to the parking lot. As you can see, there is significant damage caused by this fire. As I mentioned, it started just before five o’clock this morning. So take a look at the video. When we first arrived shortly after the fire started, when the crew was here, they said the roof of that building had collapsed, which had once again become the garage for the auto shop. The fire destroyed several cars and a boat. Here’s what firefighters said when they first arrived. We had a business structure here which he was well involved in. Access was a problem. We had one way in, so we had a strategic location. Our equipment, uh, when we arrived, there were explosions. So we launched a defensive operation, which we maintained because the structure collapsed. Uh, this is obviously some kind of body shop or something. We’re told it holds about 300 gallons of diesel fuel. Because of all that, the diesel firefighting teams had to use some defensive techniques to get there. As I mentioned, there is only one way in, and one way out. This made it difficult for them to reach some fire hydrants as well. They had to extend these water lines all the way to the neighborhood behind this building, as well as across the service road here on I 35. But to take a look at all the damage the fire did to this building, fire officials say that’s almost a total loss. . But we now know that there were no injuries, and no one was inside. Several cars inside were damaged as well, and were reported directly in southeast Oklahoma City. Shelby montgomery coco five news shelby. Thank you. This is good news, no one was hurt.
